One of the finest white wines I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. I’ve been a long-time Cantina Terlan fan, and have always had a soft spot for their $20 Pinot Bianco… but this takes things to another level. Polished, slightly saline-citrusy acidity, with muted limestone, and focused white peach and lime. It’s hard to condense this into a few descriptors. If you’re a Batard-Montrachet or Corton-Charlemagne fan, but can do with a little less French oak influence, and a little Muscadet Sevre et Maine, then this could be your jam. Looking forward to my next Alto Adige visit. Eataly Dallas (thanks to Derrek). — 4 days ago
Excellent Pinot Nero from Südtirol. Cherry and red fruit. Nice acidity. Having it on a rooftop in Rome makes this a 95 point experience. 🇮🇹 — 8 days ago
The 2021 Weissburgunder Pinot Bianco wafts up with herbs and lime zest before settling on crushed green apples and ginger. Soft-textured with a reverberation of citrus tension that nicely contrasts its inner sweetness. It leaves a subtle staining of minerals through the long and juicy finale. $15.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022) — 9 days ago
The 2020 Sylvaner is sharply focused with lemon oils, savory herbs and young peach forming its bouquet. It’s round and soothing on the palate with sweet florality, ripe orchard fruits and a core of juicy acidity. Confectionery spice and candied citrus linger on the medium length finish. $12.00 (Eric Guido, Vinous, June 2022) — 15 days ago
